Natalie Teltscher AKA the VOid Files Lawsuit Against PokerStars

An online poker player named, Natalie Teltscher has filed a lawsuit against PokerStars over a tournament she claims to have won on their poker site in September of 2007. Teltscher plays online as the VOid and she won the 2007 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event on PokerStars.

The top prize was over $1.2 million dollars and Teltscher feels she should have won but PokerStars says that she isn’t entitled to the winnings because she was disqualified for breaching the tournament rules.

PokerStars says that Teltscher didn’t play the game herself but instead had an agent play the tournament on her behalf. She did say that she had agreed with a third party that they should play the entire tournament on her behalf.

After 22 hours of play her account, the VOid was one of two that were still left in the tournament and both players decided to split the remainder of the prize pool giving the VOid $1.228 million dollars.

PokerStars has told the High Court in Douglas that Teltscher claimed that she had never entered or played in the tournament and the poker site was entitled to disqualify both her and the person who supposedly played under her user name because they breached the tournament rules.

According to the Isle of Man Today, Deemster David Doyle adjourned the case and ruled that the contractual issue had to be determined before any other issues could be addressed. They first need to determine if the player is contractually entitled to the money won by her account or whether or not the poker site was entitled to disqualify the player.
